sources tell fox the former detainee with ties to al qaeda may have led the assault in benghazi. this is the only picture we have ever had of him. he reportedly went tree from guantanamo bay in 2007 when the agreement that muammar qaddafi would keep him locked up. clearly that didn't happen. >>reporter: beside the attacks on benghazi, we first reported on this a week ago, there were two assessments indicating that conditions on the ground in eastern libya were deteriorating. this report by the defense department and the library of congress, specifically mentioned that detainee, sufyan ben qumu, has the leading edge of al qaeda's footprint reading that the senior leadership is seeking a clandestine network in libya that could destabilize the government or offer logistical support to al qaeda's activists in north africa. >> how good of a spy do you have to be to realize that part of libya is unstable? how many attacks do you have to have on the consulate and ambassador before you realize it is dangerous? >>reporter: we reported on monday this was a separate assessment by the c.i.a
in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: interesting stuff. protests planned in benghazi a big change from others we're seeing around the world in favor of the u.s. or at least honoring the late u.s. ambassador and other americans. but the broader message from the citizens there that the government based here in tripoli needs to do more to crack down on militant groups in benghazi. the problem is, another protest, gregg, is planned at the same place, at the same time by one of those militant groups. an outfit of ansar al-sharia suspected having links to the killing. they said they are innocent. they will be saying that today, maybe in a forceful day. we'll be monitoring it all. back to you. gregg: greg palkot in tripoli. greg, thanks. martha: the white house is doing a complete reversal on the characterization of the attack in libya. the adm
in benghazi on 9/11, killing the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans. sources telling fox news it was a coordinated assault and the attackers apparently had inside information about our compound. catherine herridge is live in d.c. tonight. if you could give us context. is 100 militants a lot for this sort of thing? >> well, shep, u.s. official telling fox wednesday you get past 50 with an attack that comes suddenly and without warning it creates confusion and disorientation as to the scale of the actual assault and as fox was first to report on your show the evidence shows a commando style coordinated attack in two ways with rpgs, direct and indirect fire from mortars and tonight an intelligence source on the ground tells fox that the evidence points to a joint operation between the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa and snsar ail sheridaia. they have tried and failed to establish an islamic state in eastern libya. a recent defense department report warning al-qaeda senior leadership is seeking to create an al-qaeda clandestine network in libya. >> how many attacks do you have
should have been obvious from the outset. listen to this. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we bring to justice the terrorists who murdered the americans. >> former assistant secretary of defense peter brooks who worked for the bush administration. i want to give the obama administration the benefit of the doubt. it is a little bit strange that maybe a terrorist act that now looked like it had some planning was occurring at the same time that the movie was out and it was the separate demonstrations were occurring in other places and initially, were they just jumping to conclusions when they didn't know or was it something more devious than that in claiming that it wasn't planned or it was from a demonstration? what do you think? >> i can't channel the obama administration, joe. i'm the wrong guy for that, but my concern is that they did not want to admit that it was a terrorist act. it took ten days for the secretary of state to come out and say it was a terrorist act. all they got was a filibuster and they didn't know anything more than the
attacks on the consulate in benghazi claimed the lives of the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other u.s. personnel. the attack came as muslim protested a u.s.-made film which they say insults the prophet muhammed. white house press secretary jay carney said the fbi investigation is ongoing. he said the investigators have no information at this point that suggests that the attack was significantly preplanned. carney said that investigators are now looking into al qaeda affiliates, in particular the group known as al qaeda in the islamic magreg. >>> the conflict of interest in syria is causing more human suffering and civilian casualties. opposition activists say 55 people were killed in an explosion at a gas station triggered by a government air strike. amateur video shows the site in the northern city near the turkish border. people are suffering from a serious shortage of daily goods and were lined up at the station to buy fuel. a day earlier, rebel fighters had seized a location near the city. witnesses say government forces were engaged in a fierce bad with rebel to regain control
.s. consulate in benghazi last week. the white house says it still does not know whether the attack was premeditated or sparked by an islam film made in the u.s.. we will have more on the reaction of religious extremists later on in this half hour. and a serious human rights groups report that 54 people have been killed in an air strike in syria -- >> serious human rights groups report that 54 people have been killed in an air strike in syria -- >> syrian human-rights groups. >> trade unions in india called a one-day strike on thursday and brought the country to a standstill with the message "no to walmart." >> the government has designed reforms aimed at extending the stagnating economy, including opening the market to foreign chains. >> they could begin moving in, posing a threat to the small shops that dot india's landscape. >> the shop has been run by the same family for 70 years. you can buy most essentials here and they deliver. small shops are typical in india where there are not many supermarkets. international supermarket chains are keen to open branches in the country. --
's just not right. >> showed what happened in b benghazi was not an anti-american protest. it was not as a result of a youtube video. it was an orchestrated anti-american terrorist attack. >> it shows the level, the abysmal level of their knowledge about fundamental aspects of terrorist attacks and militant operations. >> reporter: a top intelligence official told congress yesterday that al qaeda likely did play a role, regardless of whether it was a pre-planned or spontaneous attack. >> we're still developing facts and still looking for any indications of substantial advance planning. we just haven't seen that at this point. >> reporter: meanwhile, in tripoli today, at a memorial for the four americans killed, libya's president paid tribute to ambassador chris stevens as a friend of the libyan people. there were reports today that ambassador stevens believed that he was on a terrorist hit list. but secretary clinton and other u.s. officials said today they have absolutely no reason to believe that that is true. diane? >> thank you so much, jon. and as you just said, the p
at the benghazi consulate?" you pick up "the new york times" and you get a blow-by-blow description of what supposedly went o. so it was like pulling teeth to get information yesterday. a lot of senators were frustrated. and you pick up major newspapers in the country and you find details not shared with you. and one of the things i'm worried about is we're trying to find out who committed these terrible acts of terrorism -- and they were acts of terrorism, not a spontaneous riot -- i said, what is the game plan? will they be held as enemy exatents, are they going to be held as common criminals? will they be prosecuted in libya? will they be brought back to the united states? do you have to read them their miranda rights? really absolutely not a whole lot of information. but at the end of the day, it was a lost opportunity i think to inform the congress. can we now move to the rand paul amendment? mr. mccain: mr. president, i'd like to take what remaining time we have in order to discuss the paul amendment. and i'd like to begin by asking insertion in the -- in the "congressional record" a
back on it. very late yesterday the white house says, okay, it was a terrorist attack in benghazi. when you're this close to an election, you can't help but ask -- are you 100% confident politics had nothing to do with sort of what looks like from the outside the white house dragging its feet on the explanation? >> look, on the specifics i will leave it to the white house to speak to because this is a serious matter and it's one -- i don't have security clearance. i can't speak to everything about that. but i know this -- it is not being treated as a political issue at the white house. and when you have an incident like this, your responsibility is to investigate it thoroughly and move deliberately and that's what they've done. and to simply jump in to this issue and mischaracterize it and find out later that you had would have been a terribly irresponsible thing to do. it is the kind of thing that governor romney did, frankly, at the beginning and we can't afford to do that when the president is actually a man who has responsibilities as commander in chief. >> you believe you're winnin
on the american embassy in cairo. the benghazi consulate is torched. not to mention the iranians that most americans confuse with arabs anyway who, you know, every other day you open the paper, and here's ahmadinejad or khomeini talking about holocaust denial, israel is an insult to humanity. with these relationship with the israelis remaining intact and the dysfunction, the relationship with key arab states, you'll see more continuity than change. >> is there something to worry about there? when barack obama came in, he started to apply a little bit of pressure to israel on the settlement issue. if israel is our friend and ally and we have a genuine long-term interest in stability in israel's region and the long-term health of israel, israel needs to be nudged on the settlement issue. you apply that pressure and take a lot of flack. they back off and say they've been successful by backing off and they can win re-election. is there a long-term problem there that we can't nudge israel on something they need to be nudged on? >> i worked for a couple secretaries of states, bush 41 and jim bak
